on the republican line. caller: thank you for taking my call. the so-called reduction in medicare -- is this information or misinformation? are they really going to reduce the amount of money in medicare to pay for this plan? also, the public option. how come they do not want to fight for that? it seems to me that it would be a good way to go. if people are insuring -- purchasing insurance, they are responsible for reading the policy and numbing their coverage. it is just like taking out a loan. if you sign on the dotted line, you are responsible because it is a contract. i think republicans are just fear-mongering, trying to kill the bill simply because of the input of lobbyists. host: thank you for the call. guest: public comment on the medicare question. the pieces in the legislation that would reduce cost under medicare are comprised of a number of components that have been discussed by legislative advisory commissions in the past, such as the medicare advisory council, which advises congress on issues of payment in medicare. issues have also been raised by the congressional b

, that is not the way to do it. what we should do is what medicare did in 1965. it was a christmas tree in the beginning. that is how they got the legislation passed. after that, then they started putting restrictions. in fact, we must be doing a good job, because now everyone is -- scared that medicare pays so little because it is too stingy in its payment. we did put cost controls and later. medicare does have its financial problems. let me end by saying, i think the public option would have had the potential to control costs, because you could sell insurance, it would garner market share. that could allow for the consolidated purchasing power i talked about to reduce costs which would bring more buyers there. reading the newspapers, it does not look like we will have a public option. that would be the one way in which i could see a health care reform having potential for controlling costs. on a positive note, it is not about costs or dead. if we move towards universal coverage, we are going to be creating a system that will be more malleable to the changes we want to see with regard to cost containme
insurance plans pay under part d of medicare for prescription drugs. they are taking advantage of their purchasing power. and we're relying on private insurers committee are' competition in part d of medicare, it isn't as effective as the v.a. which does take advantage of its market power. let me just talk for a moment on a private insurance. we rely on private insurance here. it's for-profit insurance. i think it leads to much higher health care costs. private insurers, obviously by definition, they have to make a profit. in addition to that they engage in marketing, they also engage in what we call medical understood writing, they have to hire a lot of actuaries to make sure that they're not taking on people who are too expensive. these are all very costly things. so that raises the price of private insurance. in addition, as i said, they don't have as much bargaining power so they also can't keep their prices low by taking advantage of the consolidated power that i'm talking about. so you might ask, why do we allow private insurance to have quasi-monopoly and the answer is t
't know the exact number but clearly with the body of medicare of 55 and over we are going to pick up two or 3 million more. now you've got the program operated by the opm and you have a bye in there of several million people. there's a provision most people haven't focused on which is a state can set up a separate program for people, government-run between 133% of poverty and 300% of poverty and any number of states will essentially do that. finally in all probability the exchanges are going to be run by the states. so, as that system comes forward you've got a bigger medicare, bigger medicaid, the fixed rates other components which are going to have negotiated rates. the bad news is going to take four years, five years to get this up and operating so i'm not sure there's going to be a lot of changes. but i think we have to start thinking how do we bring those together? it may be that medicare and medicaid are dictating rates for the groups that are negotiated. >> if we take that as a presumption we are going to see something built i would like you to respond what we were talking about h

from medicare over ten years the cbo said that course of action would reduce the deficit by more than $130 billion. >> there is a number of things that make that implausible, dubious. >> such as expanding medicaid, shifting some cost to cash-strapped states or double counting savings in medicare, by saying they'd extend the life of the program, but also spending the money elsewhere. >> you it wi literally can't sp the same dollar twice. it won't work. >> then there is the doctor fix in medicare, a move to undo the previous effort to reduce medicare spending. under the current law, dockerors seeing the elderly will have a fee cut next year. they were worried about the effect so they removed it from the reform bill. >> the biggest hole in financing they left out the doc fix. >>> if it were counted the bill shifts from reducing the deficit to make it worse because the doc fix would cost $210 billion. congress still has to fix it anyway, so the house passed it separately, but simply added the cost to the deficit, which troubles democratic centrists. >> the question is how will that be fin

in social security and medicare. cuts in social security an medicare. i would simply say to them, look at where we are. look at where we are. social security and medicare are both cash negative today. the trustees of medicare say that medicare will go broke in eight years. social security will take somewhat longer. but both are on a path to insolvency if we fail to act. mr. president, it hasn't just been from the more liberal side of the spectrum that the criticism has come. also on the right.

. in 2002 under the employee initiative the centers for medicare and medicaid services began publicly reporting quality information on nursing-home nationally on their web site. this was followed a year later by a similar effort in the home health arena. simultaneously there have been demonstration products by medicare in home house and skilled nursing facilities. state medicaid agencies have begun experimenting with a for performance in the nursing-home setting. the question is how these current market-based reforms address these broad goals of long-term care. in theory these reforms are perfectly compatible with these goals of improving quality of life and reducing fragmentation and increasing community-based services but there are several key attributes of these market-based reforms that may limit their effectiveness in this regard. the first limitation is current market-based reforms tend to rely on narrowly defined clinical quality measures. this tends to reinforce a medical model of care which pays more attention to clinical quality than issues related to quality of life and a c

upfront? all the other states lose medicare vantage within five years, but florida is to keep it? why? these have to be dropped. with all respect to senator reid who says he cannot pass health care without these deals, then he is going nowhere. house members are disappointed, like the american people. there are two things to watch. legislation being made and sausage. -- there are two things you do not want to watch. this should stand on its merit. michigan was one of the first it's economically. -- one of worst states economically. let's pass this on policy. i always thought they would do a trigger. no greater than the rate of inflation, if it goes, trigger a public option. that is one when they talk about a compromise. that makes sense. this the one this side of the room. -- let's go to this side of the room.

% of all health care is run by the government today. medicare, medicaid, indian health service, military, and v.a., tricare. 60% of it is run by the government. one of the reasons you have an absolute shortage of primary care doctors in this country is because we have set the price for what they're going to pay for primary care and the doctors won't go into it anymore, because there's a 350% payment differential. so we can either embrace our heritage, which says we've relied on markets to allocate scarce resources, or we can deny it and allow the government to run it. i think the health care bill ultimately will pass. i think they're going to buy the votes. you saw what happened in the senate. they're going to dot exact same thing in -- do the exact same thing in the house to get the votes they need and we will have a health care bill that the president will sign. don't think it's the best answer for us as a nation. i can tell you what's in that bill. it puts the government in charge of what you'll get, when you'll get it and where you'll get it, and that's even if you have private insur
